Luna was sound asleep on her bed under the soft warm covers.
She was in a deep dreamless sleep with her head resting comfortably
on her pillow. A tinny winged pony named Little Flitter flew
into the room and landed on Luna's pillow. She stood and called
Luna's name but it was no us, Luna was to tired to hear her tinny
voice. Just then Royal Heart walked in and noticed Little Flitter
on the pillow.
"Well, good morning," Royal Heart whispered.
Little Flitter flew from the pillow and hovered in front of her,
"Hi, I tried to wake her up but she just continued to sleep."
"She's been sick for week," Royal Heart told her, "What
are you doing here?"
"I wanted to play with Luna and ask if I...If I could stay
here," Little Flitter shyly answered.
"Stay here?" Royal Heart asked surprisingly, "I'll
have to talk to Stardust about it first, he will also want to
talk to your Queen."
"I can ask her to come here then," Little Flitter suggested.
"Yes, please do," Royal Heart told her.
Little Flitter smiled and then she flew out of the room over
the balcony. Royal Heart touched Luna's forehead, then she smiled.
"Luna," Royal Heart called to her as she shook her,
"Come on wake up."
Luna slowly opened her heavy eyes and yawned.
"Your fever is gone," Royal Heart told her.
Luna sat up in bed, "I feel..normal again."
Royal Heart smiled greatly, "That's wonderful to hear."
"Can I leave my room now?" Luna asked her.
"Yes now that you're all better. I'll let the cooks know
you'll be joining us for breakfast," Royal Heart told her
then she turned and left the room.
Luna climbed off her bed and stretched her legs. Then she walked
to her dresser and brushed her hair. When she was done, she set
the brush down and picked up her silver collar, putting it on
in the process. Then she hurried out of her room. She was glad
to be leaving it, she had been stuck in her room for a week.
She hurried downstairs, through the hall towards the dinning
room. She stopped and took a deep breath before going in. She
could hear her parents talking about Little Flitter.
Luna walked in and smiled at her uncles who she hadn't seen in
"Luna, feeling better?" Skyview asked.
"Yes, much better," Luna answered.
"That's good to hear," Stardust exclaimed smiling.
Luna walked around the table and sat down next to her mother
and Skyview. A minute later five cooks came in carrying trays
and sat them on the table. When the cooks left, the ponies began
eating. Luna was hungry after losing her appetite to eat she
was really enjoying her breakfast.
"Slow down Luna. Your not a pig so don't eat like one,"
Royal Heart told her.
"I'm sorry mom but these are so good," Luna exclaimed.
"They're pancakes, the same kind you always eat," Royal
Heart told her.
"I think when she was sick for a week she didn't feel like
eating till now," Skyview explained.
"Everything just didn't taste so good," Luna agreed.
"Well at lest you know she's feeling better," Starfire
Her parents laughed.
"That's true, Starfire," Stardust exclaimed, "Luna,
next time your feeling batter after your sick don't eat to fast.
You can always have more afterwards."
"Ok, dad," Luna replied and then she continued eating.
Just then a soldier in silver armor and silver leg bands walk
in, "Excuse me. I'm sorry to interrupt but Queen Rosy Peach
is here to see you."
"Bring her in," Stardust answered after giving it some
"Little Flitter is here too," the soldier added.
"Alright bring both of them in but no one else," Stardust
firmly told him.
The soldier bowed and left. A minute later he opened the door
and let two summer wing ponies in the room then he waited in
Queen Royal Peach flew up to Stardust, "Oh, I'm sorry. I
didn't know you were having breakfast."
"It's alright, I'm almost done anyways. What's this I hear
about Little Flitter wanting to stay?" Stardust asked.
"Well, she wants to stay here at the castle with all of
you big ponies and to play with your daughter. You see, King
Stardust it's taken sometime for us to just come out and make
friends but Little Flitter is one of the few who has."
"I see. Well, Luna does leave the castle for a time and
won't be here with her," Stardust told her.
Little Flitter turned after hearing what he said, "I could
go with her then?"
"No, you would stay here till she returns. There are plenty
of other ponies in the castle for you to make friends with,"
Stardust told her.
Little Flitter smiled, "Does this mean I can stay?"
Little Flitter asked with a smiled.
"Yes but I do not want you flying around the castle scaring
everyone and watch where you go or land. Ponies are not used
to tinny ponies and they won't always know your there,"
"I must warn you, King Stardust. She has a habit of getting
into trouble," Queen Rosy Peach told him.
"Well, lets see how it goes first," Stardust replied.
Little Flitter smiled greatly and flew to Luna.
Luna smiled not sure what to do with a tinny pony. She seemed
quite attached to her though. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad to
have someone around to talk to. She really didn't have any friends
in this world.
"Well, I better be going," Queen Rosy Peach nodded
her head and then flew out the door.
"Finish your Breakfast Luna. I want you and Skyview to go
to Paradise Estate. I'm told there's new ponies in Ponyland building
houses. Skyview go and check it out. Find out who they are, where
they came from," Stardust exclaimed.
"Why?" Luna asked, "Does it matter where they
"Luna, I keep a record of who lives in Ponyland and where
they were born. I do not have records for those new ponies,"
"Oh," Luna replied.
Little Flitter flew up to Stardust, "Can I go to?"
"Yes but you stay with Luna at all times. Luna you stay
with Skyview, understand?" Stardust asked.
"Yes dad," Luna replied.
"Skyview, watch her closely," Stardust told him.
"I will, Stardust. Don't worry," Skyview replied.
At the volcano, Blizzard laid on his bed sleeping under his
light blue covered when Teriney suddenly walks in.
"Get up!" he yelled.
Blizzard suddenly woke up and looked up at him.
"You still have not killed her. You spend a week in this
room eating and sleeping," Teriney told him.
"She hasn't been seen for a week," Blizzard told him,
"I tried to freeze her so she wouldn't wink out. I was going
to kill her but those black ponies showed up. One of them winked
in and took her."
"Try just killing her next time instead of freezing her
and then killing her," Teriney told him.
"But someone could see me."
"I've heard you've already been seen," Teriney told
him as smoke puffed out of his nose.
Blizzard jumped out of bed seeing how mad Teriney was getting.
"Don't let me hear you've been seen again and don't ever
get yourself caught!" Teriney exclaimed angrily, "Your
wanted in every Kingdom so you better be very careful."
"I..I will, Fath-I mean Teriney," Blizzard quickly
Teriney growled angrily.
Blizzard grabbed his cloak and quickly put it on.
"Just what did I almost hear you say?" Teriney asked
"N-nothing," Blizzard replied. Then he dashed out of
his room past Teriney. He ran down the hall and through the door
then up the steps to the cave. Once he was inside the cave, he
slowed down to a walk and rested at the cliff.
"I don't understand why I can't call him father. Why does
he want Princess Luna dead? She's done nothing to him. As far
as I know, she doesn't even know he exist," Blizzard thought.
He didn't want to full fill his orders but he knew he had to
or Teriney will surly fry him if he doesn't.
Skyview and Luna appeared in front of Paradise Estate where
two soldiers in armor stood at the gates. There were four more
soldiers spread out around the building. Little Flitter sat on
Luna's head holding onto her horn as they walked past the gates.
They walked into the house past two more soldiers.
Just them Skyview' parents walked out from another room and smiled
"Hi, mom, dad," Skyview exclaimed smiling.
"Hello, Skyview, Luna. We heard you walk in," Sunlight
exclaimed but then she paused when she saw a set of butterfly
wings on Luna's head.
"Oh, mom, dad, this is Little Flitter. She will be staying
at the castle," Skyview quickly said.
"That's a...Summer wing pony. Isn't it?" Ribbon Lock
asked looking closely at her.
"I heard they've been seen in Ponyland lately but I never
thought it was true," Sunlight exclaimed surprisingly.
"They've come to stay in Ponyland so they might be seen
quiet a bit, "Skyview looked down at Little Flitter who
was hiding behind Luna's horn, "Little Flitter, it's ok.
they're my parents."
Little Flitter peaked around Luna's horn and gasped at them,
"Why aren't they black?"
"Black?" Skyview asked surprised by her question.
Little Flitter Flew from Luna's horn to the two surprised parents,
"Are they painted?"
Skyview laughed after he understood what she was getting at,
"No my parents are not black."
"Oh, I thought your parents would be."
"I don't know why the three of use turned out black."
"That's...odd," Little Flitter muttered as she flew
"Please for give her, she's just curious," Skyview
told his parents.
"It's ok," Sunlight replied smiling.
While Little Flitter checked the other rooms with Luna following
her, Skyview stood with his parents and continued to talk.
"Stardust sent me to check out the newcomers in Ponyland,"
Skyview told them.
"They just arrived a few days ago and are building their
houses," Ribbon Lock explained.
"And they didn't talk to Stardust?" Skyview asked.
"They came to us wanting to live here," Ribbon Lock
Luna followed Little Flitter to each room till she found the
kitchen. The cooks stared at her and Little Flitter. The Kitchen
reminded Luna of home in the other world but bigger, It was nothing
like the kitchen at the castle which was even bigger and made
"Hello, Princess Luna," They said.
"Hi," Luna replied smiling not sure what else to say.
"Luna!" Skyview called to her.
"Little Flitter, lets go," Luna told her.
Little Flitter flew out of the kitchen and followed Luna towards
"Lets go, we got to check the newcomers," Skyview told
They turned and left Paradise Estate. Luna hugged her grandparents
before she left. Little Flitter apologized for her curiosity.
As they walked down the hill through the forest and into a
clearing, Luna looked around and noticed how pretty the forest
looked. It wasn't very often that she left the castle. She loved
to see the forest and the animals that occasionally stopped and
stared at them.
"Do you always have to meet the newcomers?" Luna asked.
"No, just those who don't check with Stardust. These ponies
had asked my parents but didn't bother asking Stardust,"
"Oh," Luna replied.
"Besides this is a good way for new ponies to meet the Princess
of Ponyland," Skyview replied smiling.
"Oh, Luna replied.
They walked for sometime till Luna noticed a few houses in the
distance that only had the wooden beams and cement floor made.
She also saw more houses in the distance near the other end of
the clearing. Each house had a fence and a brick road between
the houses. It looked like homes in the other world but with
Four ponies stood inside the house putting up more wooden beams.
A female white unicorn with pink and light blue hair stood watching
with a baby boy pony next to her. He was mint green with the
same colors hair as his mother.
The mother noticed Skyview and Luna coming towards them and quickly
alerted the four male ponies. They all stopped and stood out
next to the house waiting to greet Skyview.
"Hello, Prince Skyview," a green male pony exclaimed.
The five ponies bowed their heads and then looked up at them.
"I was told your new here in Ponyland," Skyview said.
The five ponies couldn't get over that he is a male unicorn.
They heard Skyview was the only male unicorn alive but it amazed
them to see how true it was.
"Yes," the green pony with red and yellow hair answered,
"Me, my wife and son moved here a few days ago. We reported
to Ribbon Lock and he said it was alright."
"Is it alright that we move here?" The white unicorn
asked worriedly, "The other family was here a day before
us and said we should ask Ribbon Lock."
"You should talk to King Stardust. This is his land, not
Ribbon Lock but yes, it's alright to move here. King Stardust
just needs a few questions answered for his record. You see,
we have records of every pony living in Ponyland, it helps to
know how many ponies we have living here and what village they
live in," Skyview explained. As he talked they noticed Luna
who stood and stared shyly at them.
"Of course, Prince Skyview. We didn't know," the green
"Oh, Let me introduce you to someone," Skyview turned
and looked at Luna, "This is Princess Luna of Ponyland."
"Hello, Princess Luna," the white unicorn replied as
she bowed. The green pony also greeted her and bowed.
Luna smiled, "Hi."
The five ponies couldn't get over her wings and horn. It was
something they only heard about but never seen.
"Please forgive me for asking, Princess Luna but you are
a real winged unicorn...aren't you?" The white unicorn asked
"Yes I am," Luna answered smiling at them.
The five ponies smiled and continued to stare at her.
"It's nice to meet you, Princess luna," the green pony
As Skyview continued to talk, Luna noticed Little Flitter was
missing. She looked around her and around Skyview but Little
Flitter was gone. Luna turned and began walking towards the corner
of the house. Skyview turned and saw Luna leaving.
"Where are you going?" Skyview asked.
"Little Flitter is gone. I'm not sure where she went,"
Just then Little Flitter flew over the house and hovered in front
"Sorry, I had to check the house," Little Flitter quickly
Suddenly out of no where nine icy darts came flying towards Luna.
Skyview and the five ponies gasped. Luna froze with fear when
she saw the sharp pointed darts heading towards her. Skyview
quickly made his horn glow. A wall like cloud appeared in front
of Luna. The icy darts hit the cloud but couldn't go completely
through it. Luna looked at the pointed icy darts sticking out
of the cloud with in several inches of where Luna stood. Skyview
dissolved the cloud letting the icy darts fall. He quickly ran
up to Luna and saw the ice blue pony running towards the forest.
"Luna stay here!" Skyview told her, then he ran into
the forest past a nearby house.
The five ponies and the neighbor that was also building a house
quickly ran up to Luna.
"Princess Luna, are you alright?" The white unicorn
Luna still had a scared look on her face, "They...they came
so close to me."
"Very close I might add," a orange pony told her, then
he picked up an ice dart looking at it curiously, "It's
a dart made of solid ice."
"It's that ice blue pony," Luna replied once she got
over the scare.
"I heard about him," The green pony replied, "So,
it's really true?"
"There's a pony out there that can turn a pony to ice?"
the yellow male pony asked.
"Yes, he almost turned me to ice a week ago," Luna
Just then Skyview winked back catching the ponies by surprise.
He stood breathing hard like he had ran a very long way.
"Are you alright, Luna?" Skyview asked.
"Yes I'm fine," Luna answered.
Luna picked up an ice dart and stared at it curiously, "These
were...coming at me," Luna looked up at him worriedly.
"Don't think about it, Luna," Skyview told him.
Suddenly Luna gasped as if she suddenly remembered something,
"Where's Little Flitter?" she asked as she looked around.
"On your head," Skyview answered.
Little Flitter had her head buried in Luna's hair and between
her front legs.
"Sorry," Little Flitter mumbled.
"Sorry for what?" Skyview asked.
Little Flitter looked up at him, "it's my fault. I...should
not have left. It's my fault she almost got killed."
"This would have happened with or without you. That pony
was there waiting for the right time to get Luna."
"Did you get him?" Luna asked.
"No, I ran after him as far as I could then I lost him,"
"What kind of pony throws icy darts?" A green pony
"An earth pony with winter like abilities. I want everyone
to be careful till he is caught," Skyview told them, "Luna
lets hurry home."
"Sounds good to me," Luna replied, after what had happened
she was glad to be going back home.
Skyview and Luna said their goodbyes and winked back to the castle.
Blizzard flew from a bush and appeared in his pony form.
"That was close," Blizzard muttered.
"To close," a voice added.
Blizzard jumped and turned to see Teriney standing there, "Teriney!
What are you doing here?"
"To see you fail miserably!" Teriney answered.
"This was your idea. I tried it and he was there to save
her!" Blizzard exclaimed.
"I have another idea but for now lets go home," Teriney
Blizzard followed him through the forest towards the mountains
in the distance.
